Organizations must make sure that they adhere to the most paramount level of ethics in every aspect of business. It is important to consider how important ethics are to business research. This essay sets out to discuss an article in which an organization engaged in unethical business research. The ambition of this essay is to dissect this specific occurrence and highlight a few key points. Now that we have read about unethical research behavior, we can be sure that this specific organization was guilty of committing unethical research behavior. The organization we are going to evaluate is a pharmaceutical organization that began working with a professor that had research obtained on a medicine that related to the influenza. (Dominick & Wimmer, 2010). Part of business arrangements the professor requests that research remains confidential and that no other parties were privileged to their findings. The organization agreed to withhold the research therefore engaging in unethical business research behavior. By the pharmaceutical organization withholding research to make sure that they acquired larger profits, the research was conducted at a disservice to social welfare. Victims or......

Doss, Virginia Lindsey, Shenera Belton, Debra Harrison and Kim Arceneaux RES/351 Business Research November 7, 2012 Dr. Kenneth Idle Preparing to Conduct Business Research: Part I Opportunity Facing the NC Music Factory We have selected one of the largest music venues in North Carolina. The growth of this establishment has grown in the last 5 years tremendously. Our business research was to discover why people decided to frequent this place instead of Uptown which is within a mile radius of the NC Music Factory. Our angle was to use qualitative research which seeks to describe, decode, and otherwise come to the meaning of more or less naturally occurring phenomena in the social world. This research process uses data collection and data analysis to drawn in on the consumer’s preference. Qualitative research draws data from a variety of sources; people (individual or groups), organizations, published text (social media’s quick references), (settings/environment), objects (visual/sensory) and let’s not forget events and happenings. Which brings us to what will be our research questions? So here they are: * Job Analysis – Does the current location generate the most business? * Advertising – What images did they use to connect with their target customer’s? * New Entertainments Ideas – What did their current customer’s thought about bringing in......

...Preparing to Conduct Business Research Part 1 Team A RES/351 February 24, 2014 Sara Skowronski Preparing to Conduct Business Research Part 1 The purpose of business research is to allow a business to set itself apart from its competitors by gathering as much information on the industry that it can and utilizing that data to create unique methodologies and business practices. Researching in a business will provide information on things such as what products consumers like or do not like to buy, what the start-up costs will be, and whether any new business opportunity is viable to undertake. Researching also reveals the profitability potential of products and services and how they size up competitively with similar products available in the marketplace. The most successful organizations in each industry are perfect examples of how to successfully market, advertise, and sell your products so they should always be considered. As apparent as this may seem to any given organization, often times, businesses suffer to some degree because of the lack of focus when it comes to customer service. In a time where technology and immediacy is the common thread used in impression and persuasion, the common denominator could boil down to customer service. It can be the one thing that separates an organization from another. We will be focusing directly on the research of customer service for the company Wal-Mart as an opportunity. Researching the prosperity and customer services......

Below is a summary of research that effectively demonstrates the positive impact of athletics (both community-based and school-based) on youth development and academics. For the thousands of youth involved in athletic programs, their extracurricular activity is integral to their personal development and learning. Tens of thousands more young people engage in extracurricular athletics through community-based programs. These programs provide structure and context that yield positive outcomes for youth. As a program dedicated to producing successful young adults, we recognize the value of affording our young people access to extracurricular athletic programs. Youth Athletics and Personal Development Participation in youth athletics – whether through a school or a community-based program – has generally been considered positive for youth.

...Business Research Through Stryker William Fra RES/351 Larry Lindner Business Research Through Stryker Business research is used every day throughout the world and typically is involved in the business or organization that one works for. Stryker is one of those companies whose employees use business research to analyze problems and situations in order to produce better or more efficient results. A dilemma that often requires this research comes when a sales representative requests implants and instrument to be consigned or loaned to a hospital for an extended period of time The Process At Stryker, a large portion of the business is having the right implants and instruments at the right place and right time. Understanding this question alone will help solve the problem as it is the first stage in business research (2011). When a request is made, the first step is analyzing the past 12 months for usage by the hospital. If the turns on instrument and implant sets are more than twice a month, then the request will move forward to the next phase of analysis. The next phase is looking at the ROI, or return on investment. Stryker has premade forms that help analyze this information based on management cost of set, contract pricing, and overall projected turns per month. Some sets will return a positive ROI and some will not. Those sets that do not show a positive ROI can then be subject to a 60-90 day trial. At the end of the trail, the turns on the set is measured and if......

Kevin Semcken, who lost hearing in one ear, was intrigued and tested the product by listening to his favorite music. Kevin Semcken had a bigger vision for Able Planet. Kevin Semcken produced earphones that can fit into a person’s ear canal which would stay during strenuous activity and block-out ambient noise. He lined up thirty (30) potential customers who were interested in his innovated earphones, and convinced them to sign disclosure agreements. Kevin Semcken, Able Planet’s CEO and chairman is seeking capital to finance existing operations for its current products, build a prototype for a new product and market both products to new and current customers (Scarborough, 2012). Furthermore, the bank had changed the terms; Able Planet line of credit 2.5 million would no longer be financed by the bank for upfront cost of raw materials and manufacturing.

Organizing customer-oriented service business in manufacturing. Operations Management Research, 4(1-2), 74-84. doi: Customer service in the manufacturing industry is important to its success. Whether or not a separate customer service unit is necessary and beneficial is a key question that has yet to be determined. Using the scientific method standards Taija Turunen and Marja Toivonen attempt to close the gap on this dilemma. Turunen and Toivonens' study focused on three interlinking questions. First, which kinds of differences can be found in the organizational solutions that industrial companies apply when they establish a separate service unit? Second, how are these solutions linked to a customer-oriented approach? Third, does the success of service business differ in companies applying different organizational solutions? (Turunen & Toivonen, 2011). These questions attempt to provide manufacturing industry managers the information they need to make well informed decisions about their customer service units. The study included comparing two different companies repair service departments. Company A has an outsourced customer service department that shares little knowledge of the......

...expectations. Through the use of assessment approaches based on performance measurement models developed by a federal interagency team chartered by this Association, the participating procurement organizations have fundamentally redesigned performance assessment. From the very beginning of the transition from the traditional purchasing system reviews to the redesigned assessment approach that replaced them, it was understood that further refinement and continuous improvement was planned. Consistent with that long-term strategy, and building on the originally redesigned federal purchasing assessments, the business system assessment models of the PEA members have evolved to be more aligned with the Balanced Scorecard (BSC) approach to performance measurement and management, which is currently in use by many “world class” private corporations. This Guide describes the PEA business system assessment program, implementation procedures, evaluation standards, and reporting process. It also establishes the conceptual framework for performance management for PEA agency acquisition system assessments, as well as consistent techniques useful in performing the performance management administration and system oversight functions. In accordance with this framework, each PEA member will integrate into his/her agency’s or department’s system a balanced scorecard assessment methodology utilizing the core objectives and measures identified in this Guide, and any additional measures that......

...Understanding Business Research Terms and Concepts: Part 1 RES/351 Business Research August 13, 2014 Understanding Business Research Terms and Concepts: Part 1 It is important to understand business research terms and concepts when conducting research. Having an unclear understanding of the terms and concepts could lead to ineffective research results. Having good measurement tools in place can be used as an indicator for measuring accuracy. Tools that are put in place to measure accuracy are evaluated using three key criteria, validity, reliability, and practicality. Validity is the main concern of the research. Reliability deals with the quality of measurement. Practicality is concerned with factors of economy, interpretability and convenience. In this paper, I have chosen two articles and will identify, compare, and contrast the two approaches, qualitative and quantitative, used by the researcher. In the first article titled, “Research in the News: Practicality trumps desirability in gift giving”, the researchers use a qualitative approach. The strength of this approach was that the studies were conducted face to face in a classroom which allowed the study capture the actual emotions, feelings, and opinions of the individuals being surveyed. Using a combined approach in this study would enhance the results by adding in statistical measures, which will be obtained through the quantitative design. The appropriate method for this research study was the......

...Marcela Alzate, Chris Bregna, and Kevin Furlong September 9, 2015 Group Breakout Exercise Foundations of MGMT Chapter 4 1. In the U.S. chewing gum is more acceptable because we have a less strict culture and our ethical values are more diverse than Singapore. It is unacceptable to chew gum in Singapore because it was made illegal and their values and culture are much stricter than the United States. 2. The reason that it is acceptable to chew come on the street is because in the United States it is legal and socially acceptable. The reason it is not and should be not allowed in church is because, much like it is in school, it is distracting and disrespectful to the people around you because it is so loud and rude. No person wants to be sitting in church or a classroom for an hour and have to hear bubbles popping the entire time. 3. You can use ethical principles when it comes to chewing gum just like you decide when it is appropriate to do other things. If you’re walking on the street or just ate something and notice that you have bad breath, you have the right to chew a piece of gum to fix this dilemma. You make the choice to chew the gum, so by doing this you also take responsibility of disposing it properly. If your chewing gum you should not just spit it on the floor for others to step in it, or in class you shouldn’t chew and pop loud bubbles, you should be courteous to the people around you. We think it would be a little extreme if our culture decided to...
